Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

JSPL moves higher on plans of investing Rs 23,000 crore for capacity expansion
Angul: Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) on Friday said it has signed a pact with Lurgi for roping it in as the technology partner for its Rs. 55,000 crore coal to liquid (CTL) project, but will not offer any equity to the German firm.

"We have entered into an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Lurgi of Germany for CTL technology but without any investment participation from Lurgi in the project," JSPL deputy managing director and CEO (steel business) V R Sharma told PTI.

The Frankfurt-based Lurgi is an engineering firm with hi-tech expertise in the entire process chain of CTL projects. It also has a wholly-owned subsidiary in India - Lurgi India Company.

JSPL's subsidiary, Jindal Synfuels, would develop the project in Odisha's Angul district at a total cost of Rs. 55,000 crore, Mr Sharma said.

Mr Sharma said for other products such as methanol, JSPL is looking for technology partners from the US and Europe, other than Lurgi.

JSPL has already been allocated a coal mine for the project. The company expects to get the prospecting licence soon. The coal from the mine would be used as raw material for the project.

Mr Sharma said JSPL did not tie-up with South Africa's Sasol because the technology provided by the firm can't absorb high-ash coal which is in abundance in the country.
